Extreme Networks Snaps Up Soapstone’s Software Assets

Late last month, I held forth on the dissolution and liquidation of Soapstone Networks. Well, not all of that company’s assets will go into the dustbin of networking history.

As reported by Network World yesterday, Extreme Networks is buying Soapstone’s software assets — for provisioning services and assuring service levels — to strengthen its commitment to and offerings for carrier-Ethernet networks.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but one can imagine that Extreme got a sweet deal on distressed assets. Soapstone’s erstwhile software will be integrated into Extreme’s EPICenter network management system.
